Key Challenges for Non-halogenated Flame Retardants Market for Polymers

  • Non-halogenated flame retardants offer various benefits over halogenated flame retardants. Thus, non-halogenated flame retardants are significant substitutes for halogenated flame retardants. Non-halogenated flame retardants also possess some operational disadvantages vis-à-vis halogen based flame retardants. This is anticipated to adversely affect the market.
  • Red phosphorus, a phosphorus based flame retardant, is one of the widely used non-halogenated flame retardants. Its mechanical and electrical properties are comparable to that of halogenated flame retardants. They also carry a drawback of color impartment to polymers. Therefore, red phosphorus is just used in applications that require red or dark colors.

Lucrative Opportunities in Non-halogenated Flame Retardants Market for Polymers

  • In order to overcome the drawbacks of negative effects on polymer additives, non-halogenated flame retardants can be added with nanoclays that help reduce the negative impact on the performance of polymer additives. Nanoclays enable to improve the mechanical properties of non-halogenated flame retardants in polymers.
  • Traditionally, majority of electrical and electronic equipment manufacturers have been using brominated and chlorinated flame retardants due to their high efficiency. Halogenated flame retardants also have drawbacks, as their toxicity level is high. They adversely affect the environment. Stringent rules regarding production and import of products containing halogenated flame retardants are being implemented, owing to the rise in environmental awareness in developed regions such as Europe and North America.
